Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

Taking the throne

And Jesus said unto them,
Verily I say unto you,
That ye which have followed me,
in the regeneration
when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory,
ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones,
judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

(Matthew 19:28 - from today’s Gospel)

Today the Church celebrates the power of faith and grace
as it celebrates the Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
